Game Birds

Another challenge at Come And Get It challenges - this week it's "use two different embellishments", check it out: cagichallenge

I love this image from our sponsor Pickled Potpourri: pickled-potpourri.com/hunting-fowl-digital-stamps

My two different embellishments are a feather and brads.

I printed the image, then masked it for the stencilling and splatter (which unfortunately I could not get to show up very well in the photo).      Click on for a closer look.

Journey - going for a spin

Made for a family birthday for someone who likes action.   Simple but a bit of fun.
I made the background with Glimmer Mists.
For the spinner I just cut a square from double sided patterned paper and then slots from the corners almost to the middle. Holes pierced in each corner and folded the points to the middle, attached together with a tiny metallic brad.
Words inside say "A birthday is the first day of another 365 day journey, enjoy the trip!"  I thought the travelling spinner was totally appropriate.

Also: Glimmer Mists, brad

Distressed Words

Such great words to encourage someone, especially if they are going through a rough patch, or even if they're not.  Everyone needs to hear these words.





I made the background cards.  The large background is Distress inks sponged onto glossy photo paper; the smaller background is a play with Oxide Inks with distressed edges.

Word die: unbranded
Rose die: Poppy stamps
Film die: Sizzix
Leaf die: unbranded
Also Gauze, Distress inks, Distress Oxide Inks, silver acrylic paint splatter.
